Katie grew up in Ottawa. Initially studying nursing in university, she realized her true career aspirations were in the veterinary field. After attending the vet tech program at St. Lawrence College, she fell in love with Kingston and decided to settle there with her husband, dogs Archie and Mabel, and blue-tongued skink Muddy. She has been a part of the Sims Animal Hospital team since 2017. She loves seeing the special bond that clients have with their pets. In her spare time, Katie enjoys puzzles of any kind, video games, and learning to play the ukulele.
